The Optical Microcharacterisation Facility at Macquarie University manages a suite of novel research tools - optical microprobes – that combine state-of-the-art technologies in microscopy with versatility and diagnostic power of spectroscopy.
The goal is to provide spectroscopic information on physical, chemical and biological systems on the micrometre and nanometre scale. Such characterisation can be used to resolve important problems in chemistry, forensic science, geology, biology, physics, biochemistry, physiology and materials science.
Examples include the development of new tests for cancer, more effective methods for detection of low levels of water borne organisms, the design of better electronic materials and forensic identification, thin film and materials characterisation.
We anticipate that this instrumentation, with its broad range of applications, will promote and develop interdisciplinary research on the boundary between physics and other sciences.
